NUMBER OF SETS: Unknown. Bulk of Lego collection dates from before
1980, with recent additions after 1990

GENERAL OUTLOOK: I am not so much drawn by the desire to build the
pre-defined models, so my collection is not broken out into its original
sets. Rather, everything joins together for new and greater creations.

		- large town set with lots of matchbox-sized VW bugs, 
		ESSO trucks, big emphasis on working garage doors.
		circa 1963, big gears (maybe set #002???).
		Mostly bought 'em by the bag in those days, not by the set.

  set my Dad got me when we visited Holland.  
Favorite Themes: Castle and Space 
Favorite Set: There was a space set of a white and blue spaceship with
  many laser cannons in front and two detachable pods. Really cool!  
Best LEGO project: I built a castle, the surrounding charred
  badlands, and an entire mountainous region (where the robin hood
  people lived) and a sea shore (where the pirates landed). Also built a
  detailed castle, complete with escape route for the king and queen,
  several secret treasure rooms with booby traps, two gladiator arenas,
  and a pair of portcullis' (sp?) and a thick sliding wall that all
  together, NO army could possible penetrate! Its all in pieces now,
  though. :'( My cousin the architect and I are planning an incredible
  project some time in the near future!

Kids:    	Do roommates count?
Employment: 	Student, Programmer, some-time LEGO arms dealer.
		See .sig for more complete information.
		LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FOR After Graduation!
Number of Sets:	More than you can possibly imagine.
		I dunno, I can imagine quite a bit. 
		Ok, how's this, no space left.  Have about 40 sets
that I had to take apart due to lack of space.  Have 19 sets that I
haven't even put together yet, including El Dorado Fortress and Enchanted
Island.  Have LEGO assembled on every available flat surface in my
room, thinking about either expanding to the living room or to my
office.
Number of Pieces: No Clue.  Had a count once, but that was about 15
years ago, when it was still a reasonable thing to do.
Oldest Set:  	Red <Fire?> Helicopter, circa 1973, still have collapsed
box.	Fire truck from same time.  One other set as well, with a
blue trailer, but don't have the box or the instructions any more,
so NO idea what it was.
Favourite Theme: Castle [Black Knights, Dragon Master, CLASSIC]
		 Pirates [Pirates, BLUE Imperial Guard]
Favourite Set in Collection: Classic Yellow Castle
Favorite Item:	Green Dragon from Dragon Masters.  Viewed in
profile, and imagined to be all Red, this could be mistaken for a
Red Dragon Sagant, which is pretty cool, since that is part of
Beta's crest.  Now, if only LEGO would MAKE a red dragon.

Although castles are my favorite theme, I'm going through a space phase and am 
designing a noncombative role-playing game for my kids.  The game is set in 
the solar system and uses space Legos.  I'm interested in any and all games 
that use Legos and have looked at (but not yet played) Legowars, Plastic 
Ships and Wooden Men (or is that Plastic Ships and Plastic Men?), etc.

Since I can't keep track of what my son has, I made a list of what instruction
books he has.  It came in VERY handy at birthday/Chistmas time.  I also kept
track of prices for comparison shopping.  It is a nice way of seeing what
we have, but is no longer being made.  Or what sets we should have bought
but didn't!  (I went thru shop at home this summer and entered every item 
in the catalog).

By the way, I called Dacta and ordered their catalog.  The  voice message
system said it would be shipped in 48 hrs.  We'll see how long it takes to get
here (now that my son has spent his Christmas money!)

make. Lots of pieces and red roof tiles.  Also a family with figures about
6cm high, much larger than minifigures.  I still have the little girl from
the family intact.

I am very new to this newsgroup and to lego collecting.  My boyfriend and I
have only been seriously into lego since about christmas last year.  It all
started about 6 months ago when we helped some people clean up their house
and came away with a small amount of someones lego collection in a tuperware
container large enough to fit a cake inside.  It sat in a cupboard for six
months, then one day just before xmas I walked passed it and decided it was
time I washed it.  That was it - we were hooked.  We both had lego as
children, Peters had long since died, but I went over to my mothers and got
mine.  We got a catalogue, bought six technics kits, got a friend of ours to
lend us his childhood lego (he is only ninteen or so, so he had 6080 a cool
castle, a train station, and heaps of space stuff), and here we are.

General Comments: I've been wanting to collect LEGO since I was very little  
                  (the neighbors had it and I didn't *waah* :) -- I finally 
                  started while I was in high school. Since then I've been  
                  able to persuade almost everyone who is a relative/friend 
                  that "buying Holly LEGOs is a GOOD thing" But I've
                  made it difficult because 1) I don't like the space themes 
                  2) I don't like anything that has the 3D molded bases and
                  3) I won't allow anyone (accept my fiancee) to buy me the   
                  large ($75+) sets.

Favorite Set in Collection:  The 2 new Aquazone submarines are great.
 My son and I checked out all the toy stores in the area over the last
 few weeks and bought all the new Aquazone sets except the big one.
 That will have to wait until our birthdays later this year.

Bragging: My 5YO son put together his first set from the instructions 
 all by himself the other day. It was the new small Apollo space set and 
 boy was he proud of himself. He's always built stuff made up on his own
 which is great but he always thought the instructions were too hard. 
 Can't stop him now - he's off and building.

Favorite Themes:       Technic
Favorite Set:          The large Technic helicopter
Favorite Construction: I used to make submarines, four feet long.

My first job was with Lego. Their distribution centre was located
where my father worked as part of the Taubmans paint factory at
Villawood. (I think there was a link between Coultalds/Taubmans/Lego
here in Australia in the early days). My job was to complete demo
models received from Denmark if they were damaged in transit.  I
recall receiving a half-completed model ship and asked to do the
superstructure.  To achieve this, a stack of water-damaged boxes were
delivered to me with the offer that I could keep anything I didn't
need for the ship. Needless to say, I was in to minimalist structures
long before engineers discovered finite-element analysis!  My father
eventually became a storeman for Lego, and in my early teens, I'd have
a job during school holidays and some weekends filling orders on the
warehouse, or helping to unload the latest container shipment.

It was my first paying job!

Favorite Themes:	Technics, Lego-Logo (conceptually)
Favorite Set in Collection:	Oh, yeah, all the pieces *did* come

Extra Tidbit: I remember this old old set I used to have, and I know I 
still have the pieces but somehow the instructions went astray. It was 
one of those London buses, with two levels. If anyone knows what I'm 
talking about, I'd appreciate knowing that it's not just an acid

General Comments: I've been collecting Lego sets for about 19 or 20 years,
 and after a long lapse, I've recently been very interested in the Technic and
 train series.  I have a Lego railroad made up of over 200+ rail sections
 that is attached to the ceiling of my apartment.  While this is not the
 best place for a railroad, it's all I have room for.  The switch tracks
 are remote-controlled pneumaticly, using all Lego parts except most of the
 80 feet of air tubing which was cheaper at the local hobby store.

i had been collecting since i was seven.  when i ran out of money for
college in fall 1992, i came to work at LEGO imagination centre in mpls.
after six months there, i was sent to enfield to be a model builder.

technically, we are only allowed to use elements that are found in sets
at the time of creation.  (2x4 green bricks are made and are allowed
because you could make those out of 2x4 green plates.)  

my wife and i got married after meeting at LIC(LEGO Imagination Centre)
it was a "LEGO" wedding.  we had LEGO centerpieces on all the tables, 
and had playtables and a eight foot tower at the reception.

have been answered and since i do not have a unlimited bank account, i
will not be able to go over all the messages.  please email if there 
are questions i can answer about model building.

p.s.  if you email, tell me what my address is.  i got on the net esp.
to see this newsgroup.  (the company mentioned it.)

      and one 12 yr old Siamese cat(Sparky)
EMPLOYMENT: math instructor - university of new orleans
NUMBER OF SETS: 15 (?)

Here's my shot!  I've been lurking for a while since I found the group and
this makes a good introduction:


Name: Heather Fraser
AGE  20
LOCATION  Sudbury,Ontario
MS  Engaged (Brian, date as yet unset)
KIDS  None yet (thank god, I'm not done with my lego yet!!)
EMPLOYMENT  Geology/Engineering Student @ Laurentian University  // Keeping
  useless profs employed, and learning from the good ones
#OF SETS  3 @ University and ?? at home
#OF PIECES  Never Enough
FAVOURITE THEME  Castles
FAVOURITE SET  All of them
OLDEST SET  The house set I was given at my first Christmas (aged 18 days) as a
  joke on my father who I still have to fight off to get at the lego.
CURRENT PROJECT  Avoiding exam/study stress and trying to find unique ideas for
  my wedding


Funny but true:

	I have no depth perception and find it difficult to think in 3-d.  When
I came to University last year I got strange looks around res. as I'd build
models to help with my engineering projects.   While tutoring in res this year
on calculus (area of revolution with integrals) I got out the lego and spread
it out on the common kitchen table to show my point.  Everyone called me crazy,
but the end result was a 90% on the test, and all night lego fest (5am when I 
went to bed) and about 10 people bringing back lego after Christmas Break!!

Age: 31
M.S: Single
Kids: No, just nieces
Employment: Software Engineer at HP
Number of Sets in Collection: 30+
Number of Pieces: 11,000+
Oldest Set: Large gears from 70s, etc.  I've got some of those "Two 2x2
            'wafer thin' flats connected by a plastic stem" pieces. :-)
Favorite Themes: Technic, Trains
Favorite Set: Super Car #8880, hands down.
Favorite Creation: A Lego Shay steam locomotive.  A Shay is a geared
                   locomotive, with three upright pistons on one side.
                   My Lego version uses the technic pistons, which pump
                   as the engine moves (powered off one of the wheels).
                   Shays were used mostly for logging operations, which
                   required narrow gauge tracks, tight turns, and steep
                   grades.  That makes the Lego turns a little more 
                   realistic.  :-) I plan to put a jpg file on the net
                   when I get pictures of it.

 Designing a cathedral. A friend and I have gotten the north wing (the
 nave, I believe) completed. It's about five SCP (standard castle pieces)
 tall, and one-and a half of the large gray plates long. We are beginning
 to run out of pieces, so we're not sure how on earth we're going to do
 the other three wings. It has a pipe organ. I might try to borrow a
 friend's QuickTake 100 to do jpegs.

I'm having probs with my newsreader, so I will try to do this by memory.

Name: Malinda
AGE: 29 (I think)
Marital Status: single ("living in sin" for past four years)
KIDS: No. LEGOs are mine, all mine. :)
OCCUPATION: Ophthalmology librarian at Emory U. Hosp.
EDUCATION: BA in Fine Arts, BA in English, minor in Communictations
# of PIECES: Er, are you kidding? Answers (choose one):
[a] Too damn many (when no models are built and I have to store them)
[b] Too damn few (especially of one piece/color when building from 
imagination)
[c] A kajillion
[d] lots
# of SETS: Um, what constitutes a set? Does a $2.79 Black Knight count as 
a set because it is in a box by itself? (See below for listing.)
Claim to Fame: Using LEGOs as stress therapy, building six houses around 
a garden square last night using Mega Blox baseplates and a grey LEGO 
baseplate: blue police station, yellow duplex, red hotel, white and pink 
private home, red private home, pizzaria. Turn the baseplate, all the 
buildings have open backs and multiple floors. Pizzaria has outdoor 
dining, cars can go around several buildings and the square. No 
particular reason. Swiped Mega Blox chandelier, turned it upside down and 
made it a fountain in square.
What got me started: Bought #6237 (pirates with chest and parrot) and 
#6401 Seaside Cabana together for under $8 when I accompanied my 
boyfriend and our tenant/roommate David to TRU (they needed new Frisbees for 
Frisbee Golf). That was last year. Never had LEGOs when younger. BF gave 
me old pieces including a damaged baseplate that sounds like the one 
everyone's discussing: 24 x 40.

The "o"'s are white dots and the "x"'s are flat areas.
I also have some odd pieces like 1x2 and 2 x 3 POLICE bricks, a piece 
that looks like a firetruck piece, some red and yellow "Legoland" bricks, 
some red bricks with LEGO on them, a hinged "claw" for a crane, some 
pulley/crane pieces, etc, all that Steve had when young. Many of his are 
glue-damaged. (He was a destructive child and used to stage actual fires 
in Legoland. Glue he used burned satisfactorily I guess.) Lots of old wheels.

'dragon' horse blinders.
6416 _Poolside Paradise_ Bought chiefly for the baseplate and large clear 
pieces, mailbox.
6048 _Majisto's Magical Workshop_ Bought for Majisto. Hinged, opens by 
putting halves on separate baseplates.
6314 _City People_ Bought for bicycle and champagne glasses (early 
purchase, charm has since faded a little. :) )
4011 _Cabin Cruiser_ Gift, no box to be found, do have instructions. Does 
float. Has shark.
 545 Basic set--comes with six-partitions and two basepaltes to store 
"all" your Legos. (Ha!)
6401 _Seaside cabana_. Lost box.

6237 Pirates with chest of gold, parrot. Lost box. Small sample set.

5142 Polybagged white bricks from S@H
5137 Town accent pieces from S@H
5149 Doors and windows (these have green shutters, red pieces and white 
accents)

I have no desire to collect Technic people or Belville. I would collect 
Space if I had room. I don't so I collect Town and Paradisa mostly, but I 
can't resist the medieval figs/sets. :)

Fave sets: all. Also: last set bought, set I plan to buy next...sets I can't
afford...
Fave pieces: usually the little accent  pieces like glasses, animals, 
brushes and shovels, swords, plumes and helmet decorations, treasure 
chests, bikes, etc. The minifigs are my favorite pieces. :) I don't have 
nearly enough hair for the women, though. I do have a LOT of caps.
Majisto w/ wand and dragon and 'scroll'. Knight with ghost. 9V police car.
Least favorite piece: Mega Blox :), tiny 'roof' flats.
(Mega sets I own: barrel of 1000 pieces, blockblaster, house.)

Sets I want BADLY: (Santa? I've been REALLY good...)
6339 Shuttle
6597 Airport
6562 Octan station
6044 King's carriage
6008 King on horseback
6398 Knight with skeleton
6398 Police station
The infamous "Midnight Transport" set I forgot the number to.
6483 _Coastal Patrol_ (9V set)
6399 _Airport Shuttle_
6409 _Island Arcade_ (mostly for minifigs, glasses and seats)
6376 _Breezeway Cafe'_ It's a restaurant with RED accents and a minifig 
with a Stetson hat.
6273 _Rock Is. Refuge_
4163 Freestyle (with motor/9V)
4161 Freestyle with more figs and a storage case.
 565 Build-and-store chest
 737 Freestyle with firetruck & 9V lights/siren action
6419 _Rolling Acres_ To 'complete' Paradisa, though I dislike the Acrade 
and Playground sets in comparison to other sets
4554 _Metrostation_ *****
4558 _Metroliner_ *****
4548 Speed regulator
4547 _Club Car_ ********
6345 _Aerial Acrobats_
6090 King's castle
4539 RR Crossing w/ guard
6666 Ambulance
6254 _Pirate's Plunder_
6539 _Victory Cup Racers_
6571 Firehouse (not _Fire Control Center_)


Another idea for lurking LEGO employees: LEGO post office! Children can 
enjoy putting letters into lock boxes and blue postal boxes (red for UK 
sets), putting the happy mailman in his postal truck with lots of yellow 
and white letterds and packages (I imagine some flats printed with sheets 
o stamps and flats printed to resempble magazines.) Adults can get a 
flintlock gun and play "Disgruntled postal worker!" If a deluxe set, you 
can have a motorized conveyor belt moving all the deposited mail to a 
waiting bag or container w/ wheels and LOTS of disgruntled postal 
workers. :) Maybe a working teeny bell on the counter. Don't forget flats 
with "wanted" on them and a draft poster for US sets. :) Maybe even a 
place to take "passport photos" complete with harrassed postal-
worker-in-charge-of-passport-stuff. Cool, huh?

I know I mentioned Santa, but I forgot to say that Majisto is already a 
good model. Just change the color scheme a little. :)

Ta,
Malinda

Name: David G. Williams
Age: 20
E-Mail Address: dgwillia@willamette.edu
Marital Status:Single
Kids:NONE
Employment: Student
Location: Salem, OR
Number of Sets Owned: I am not quite sure of this number.  I have two 
huge boxes filled with legos.  I'm thinking, somewhere in the 
hundreds.
Number of Pieces: Again this is rather ambiguous.  See above.
Oldest Set: circa 1980
Favorite Theme(s): Definitely the Town Theme
Favorite Set(s): I am rather partial to both the aquatic motif, i.e. the 
fire ship and the police and coast guard boats.  I also have a certain 
flare for aviatic themes.  I have a circa 87 airport that I enjoy.  I 
must say, however, that I have always enjoyed purchasing the little 
sets.  When I was a Kid I would save my allowance til I got like ten 
dollars and then go to Toys-R-Us and buy the most I could with that. 

I was never much into playing with the stuff I built.  I mostly enjoyed 
building things and since most of my sets don't have the directions with 
them I was forced to use my imagination more than once.  Thank goodness.  
When I would get stuck without a piece to fit a certain way.  I would 
whip out the graph paper and design the piece that I desired.  I think 
several times I had my mom mail them to Lego.  I don't know if she ever 
did because I never got a response; however, some pieces that exist today 
bear a striking resemblence to those that I had designed...hmmmm.  I 
think that my best creation was built around 85 or 86.  I built a ski 
resort in my room.  By propping up my bed sheets on chairs and such I 
created the mountains(I didn't have enough pieces to build a mountain out 
of Lego's at the time.)  I built several chair lifts and a gondola that 
went from the top of one mountain to the top of the adjacent one.  This 
resort was complete with several mountain top restaurants and a chateau 
at the base.  I even had a parking lot filled with cars...It was a busy 
saturday.  I think I took a picture of it.  I have no Idea where those 
are but now I want to go find them.

Well,  I may have gone a bit long on this roll call thing, but I enjoy 
talking about my childhood legos.  I regret not bringing at least some of 
them to college with me.  I do purchase a set now and then and enjoy them 
to the fullest.  

After writing this my interest has been peaked,  I would be interested in 
hearing about CREATIVE creations...not just the typical town setting or 
moon scape.  Let's hear the good ones.  

Again, I apologize if this has gone longer than usual, but If you read it 
all, then I appreciate it and look forward to hearing about your 
creations/inventions.

Number of sets owned: about 25-30 (including old ones that have been
permanently dismembered)

Number of pieces: probably a few thousand

Oldest set: I have the mid-'70s Hospital and Fire Station, from the time
when minifigs didn't have movable arms and legs

Favorite sets/themes: Space in general, especially Spyrius.  Probably 80%
of my sets are various space themes.  I've also managed to get the two
smallest Aquazone sets (Sea Sprint 9 and the little Aquashark guy), and if
I ever find the bigger Aquazone sets in the local stores they'll probably
become new favorites.  Probably my favorite single set is the Spyrius
Saucer Centurion.

win me over.  

Well, I'd like to introduce myself to this newsgroup.  I've played with 
LEGO as far back as I can remember.  Unfortunately though, as I matured, 
LEGO became less of a focus of my life, and too much of a cost, so I end 
through a period where I bought LEGO very infreqently.  (As know as the 
Dark Ages).  With my introduction into the Internet, I quickly found this 
group, and my interest in LEGO was perked.  Hearing discussion of the new 
Aquazone really made me want back into the world of LEGo, well here I am, 
a few months later, a few hundred dollars less, and with about 20 more 
LEGO sets.  It feels good to be back into it.  I forgot how much I love 
the sound of new LEGOS in a box.  Hee-hee.

Occupation : Software engineer
Number : Around 10000 (had some time to kill when wisdom teeth

Sets : Around 100 or so.
Favorites : Castle, Ice Planet
Last Creation : A cool castle with a couple of draw-bridges (about
  2'x2'x2').  It underwent a seige, though.  My cat powered his way
  through the royal guard and made off with the princess.  Took a
  while to find her head :)

Just catching up on reading this group and a lot of people were
referring to an old conveyor belt thing.  I have this set (545
Conveyor station) with full instructions.  Others mentioned were the
London bus (760) and that rescue helicopter (480 or 770 <- one of
which had an ambulance, too).  They bring back memories.  These sets
are all from around '73-'75.

My brother (avid collector, too) and I used to build space ships
(fighting over the LL924 pieces from the Space Cruiser) and then put
them through drop tests.  The less that fell off from the highest
distance won.  Didn't really accomplish much, but passed the time and
kept mom happy.

Oldest Set: I first got one of those firemens sets w/ the figures w/o
movible arms but i don't know what happened to it...the oldest set i still
have is the miniture and older version of  a Galaxy Explorer look alike.
BTW it is still assembled as i don't have the instructions...
Number of sets: 200+
Number of pieces: ??? lots.
Favorite type of set: space though they are finally geting around to my
field with the aquazone...i have a rather nice mobile hanging above the
dining room table ( and a very understanding SO).  The model team sets also
attract my $$$.  
Biggest pet peeve w/ lego: the reduction and combination of pieces in some
sets. eg the walls in the castle sets.  I don't mind specialization of
pieces but making one piece that can only be used for that one thing when
it could be done with a few more 1xX and 2xX's almost lost lego my
business.
Kids: Just me and my SO.

Number of sets: 0, But my kids have more than 100 ranging from basic DUPLO
                to the latest Technic sets. 
Oldest set: Cant say. I have played vith LEGO as long as i can remember. My
grandmother (and later my mothers sister) had a toys shop in a small town,
Hobro. My aunt was the one of the best shops to visit when looking for the
newest, and largest LEGOsets, the LEGO rep says. Unfortunately she had to close
the shop before Christmas last year (she is 78 years old). 

When I was a kid, the number of different LEGO bricks was very limited. We only
had the standard bricks, later the flat bricks came. Doors and windows vere
placed in an recess in the brick, doors was 2 dots wide and 3 blocks high,
windows 2 or 4 dots wide and 2 blocks high. There vere no tubes in the bricks
to keep them together. We could go to the toys shop and buy 1 single brick !!
Lego only produced a small number of gift sets. A garage, a gas service
station, a church, a villa as far as I remember. 

At the same time as introduction of the tubes in the bricks, a new style of
doors and windows with frames vas introduced. The windows came in sizes from
1*1 to large shop windows. (I have a dealers box only missing a few doors and
windows)

LEGOLAND in Billund, I have been there twice. Its nice looking place but there
are too many people visiting the relative small area. Too much time is used for
waiting.

Well this must be enough for now. I'll return with more LEGO history another
time :-)

Bye, Niels Jalling
PS: besides playing LEGO with my kids I collect and play with Meccano/Erector.
Its much easier to build a clock with :-)

my old lego together. Since I will start working soon I can't wait
to spend some of my new money on Lego. I hope to build a complete lego

Education: BSME, Gonzaga U. 1993 (Are all the technic freaks MEs?)

LEGO history:

Sure, I had LEGOs when I was a kid, but through various moves, lost
'em all.  The real stuff is more recent.

I started working for PCS during my senior year of college.  PCS was
started about ten years ago in Nampa, ID by Pat McShane.  For more
details on present day PCS, check out:
http://www.halcyon.com/pcs/pcshome.html

I could go into details, but suffice it to say that PCS does alot with
technic LEGOs.  After finishing a DRY four-year ME program far to 
heavy on the theory, LEGOs were a godsend.

So I've been lucky enough to say that I just about get paid to play
with LEGOs.  Robotic arms, 5 foot ferris wheels, and the usual bunch
o' amitious LEGO projects, all for work.  I am lucky.

---------------------------
On another note:

I saw that bruce@algol.demon.co.uk posted some info about doing some
efficiency testing on worm gear gear-trains.  I'm interested in having
the various PCS schools continue with the testing, and would love to
hear from any that have done anything in this arena.

Organization: Wimsey Associates

Name:  Robin Sather
Age:  29
MS: Married (to the older sister of Tim Westcott - a regular contributor to 
RTL!)
Kids:  Nope!
Occupation:  Self employed computer consultant/programmer
# of sets:  almost 200
# of pieces:  roughly 26,000 (I actually only counted 2/3 of the sets from 
box counts, and estimated the rest)
Oldest set:  Oldest set would be a small red & white freighter from 1965 (no 
number), although I've gots lots of really old stuff!
Fave themes:  Castle and Technic (but I love them all!)
Fave set:  probably 6077 (Forestman's River Fortress), 8880 (Super Car), but 
alas I love them all!

Miscellaneous comments & opinions (I've wanted to respond for so long!!!):
(This will probably dredge up all those old threads!)

1)  You gotta love this news group!  It's so refreshing to see people HAPPY 
for a change.  Takin' it easy, having fun!  Don't ever change it.

2)  Keep ALL lego stuff in one newsgroup, including auctions, all themes, etc.

3)  Regarding specialized vs. basic pieces;  I love having lots of basic 
pieces, to build with bulk and size.  I also love having specialized pieces, 
for added realism and detail.  Thankfully, I can buy lots of both types of 
sets, especially this year, with the new freestyle sets with just 1xn's and 
2xn's (set number 1715 - 400 pieces for about $15, or 1717 soon with 600!).
So I don't want to hear any more complaining!

4)  Regarding copying/distributing instructions;  I think it's a bad idea 
to do anything illegal, especially right under Lego's nose!  If I lost a 
set of instructions for a set I own, I would try to get them from Lego first, 
then perhaps from the net.  If I simply want the instructions, I think I'm out 
of line going to the net for them.  We should simply keep lobbying 
lego to reissue them in books, CD ROM or whatever.

5)  Lego CAD;  I've seen probably 5 "serious" attempts at this sofar.  Look 
guys, give it up!  Do you have any idea of the complexity of the task!  Lego 
must use something in house.  Again, we should lobby Lego to make it available 
to Lego computer maniacs (and that's us, folks!).

6)  People have dissed good ole' Jeff Crites for his Castle Listing (I know
this is an old thread, but anyway ...) You gotta love him!  I mean that.  
I appreciate his Castle listing, and have used it on occasion to identify some
old sets.  If you don't like the listing, ignore it.  I don't like the price
estimates, but as he is extremely careful to point out, these are simply
observations of what has actually happened on the net, so they're accurate!
Keep it up, Jeff!

7)  You also gotta love Todd Lehman.  People like him are the backbone of this
group, people.  "Auczilla".  What a concept.  All of us, whether buying or 
not, drool all over our keyboards just looking at the listing (496 gold coins, 
25 black horses, 48 castle corner walls ... drip, drip).  You help to keep 
this group going.  I'm looking forward to conversing.  I can't believe how
much money this guy must spend !!

8)  Although I don't see his name as often, I think Dik Winters is the "Old 
man", the guru, the "Grand Poobah" of the net.  He has the most info about 
really old stuff (ie. Fabuland in recent posts), and I'm glad he's still 
logging on to monitor what's going on.  Anyhow, good to meet you, sir!

9)  Stickers, decals, etc.  Never use them, store them, look at them, but
never actually stick them on.  Too much hassle!  My 2 cents.

Got back into Legos with Blacktron I and then Ice Planet/Spyrius.

controllers.  Four level crossways and two switching tracks.  I have just 
built the airport and thanks to Peter Cook have an airport schuttle to add to 
it.  

I bought my first Lego for Sam 8 months ago.  It was the Pirate ship the 
Skull's Eye Schooner # 6286.  It was on a rainy Sunday morning when tennis was 
cut short and Sam was big into pirates.  I firgured that I would slap this 
together in an hour and Sam could play with it the rest of the day.  (It took 
a bit longer than an hour:>), and I was doing all of the playing, but I was 
hooked.)  Sam loves all of his pirate ships and castles.  The rest was 
downhill from there.  It any one wants to talk trains or Legos just call me at 
800 964-5480.  I am on the look out for any old trains or any old catlogues.

Favorite theme(s):  I personally favor trains, technic and castle in

Favorite set(s):  Load'n'Haul Railroad
Current project:  I'm collecting Octan-related sets that would work
    well with my trains, such as the Gas Station, Gas Transport, etc.

Other lego preferences include:  I apply stickers that come with models,
    but not stickers in Idea Books (Bill and Mary, for example).  I sort
    all my pieces in little parts drawers, which my son then proceeds to
    randomize.  I do not keep models assembled, except for trains.  I don't
    maim legos by cutting them or adding holes (but I've been tempted!).
    My collection is strictly Lego-brand building bricks, but Michael has
    been given one or two Megablocks sets that keep turning up with the Lego's
    (aaarrgg!!! :-( ).  I don't buy sets as investments, but given recent
    trades with Todd Lehman, I may start.  I don't mind auction updates in

In simple, I'm problably hooked for life.

Majisto's tower, Dark Dragon's Den, Rock Island Refuge and other misc. pieces
to build the Wolfpack a decent home.  THeir numbers have been augmented through
strategic purchase of pirate sets (Renegate Runner, pirate minifigs (including
the woman) the island) and duplicate Wolfpack sets.  With their alliance to
Edmund the Black Falcon, they are a force to be reckoned with!  No more shall
they be mere gypsies who followed Robert back from his mad quest north... They
shall... erm... I'm getting a bit arried away here... :)

p.s. I'm a set-based collector for castles.  The only set I don't have built 
is the Dark Dragon's Den, the original of which has been used for the 
Wolfie Castle.  The other sets for that were purchased for the sake of building
it.

Current project:  Reconstruct Pirate Ship 6285 gotten at a yard sale
together with David who was _very_ excited when we got the two large
buckets with Lego that included the ship.  Especially since his father had
banned Pirate and Castle stuff before (C'mon - we didn't have this stuff

                    I've been mentioning off and on since my last one ended.
                 2) Build all the new sets I bought for myself at K-mart. I
                    did get the Sail N' Fly Marina together last week but the
                    Imperial Trading Post, Mach II Red Bird Rig and smattering

                    had served me so well throughout childhood. I also keep
                    forgetting to see if my Galaxy Explorer instructions are

M.S.: (Or S.M.?) Multiple mess (three boyfriends and one girlfriend

Kids: Did you read the "Selfish Gene" or Heinlein?. I will clone
       myself (not too many of them(me), probably they(me) will want
       to be cloned themselves too...).
Cats: They use to like me. I do not care, provided they keep their nails hidden.
Number of Lego sets: 33 in the Dark Ages (1971-1978), around 140 since the
        Rediscovery (1991, including things 1979-1995).
Pieces: You want them classified by type, color and date of origin?
Oldest complete set: A colourful train without motor from 1972.
Favourite set: London bus, I got it in 1974 for my 7th birthday. Never
       dismounted (well, it is not true, but only part of the upper
       deck).  From more recent times: 6980, Galaxy Commander 1983, I
       bought in a shop last September.
Favourite theme: I restarted buying Lego because of middleages Lego,
       but suddenly I have found myself buying a lot of old space Lego.
Current project: I made my castle too impregnable.  So, now I am
       making big siege towers (I had a look at those Spyrius robots
       and maybe...and those wheels...).  I need more people for the

    I was inspired by the way some people in this group keep track of
    their lego collections, so I thought I would see exactly what I
    had.  Boy was I suprised.  It added up faster than I expected.
Favorite theme(s): Used to be just a space collector.  Started with
    Mtron and collected every space set since.  So the collection is
    complete from Mtron through Ice planet.  But wasn't too happy with
    the Spyrius line, so I started branching out.  Oh, what have I
    done?!!  Now I'll buy any lego set that looks interesting.
    Currently I'm trying to collect the Forestmen sets.  Wish I had
    done that when they were first out.
Favorite set(s): Blacktron II Arial Intruder.  I really like the way
    the little cars roll out when you open the hatch!  Any Forestmen
    set.
Current project: Sherwood forest (hence the need for more forestmen!)
    Built a waterfall last night.  Looks pretty good if you squint at

saw an enormous Lego train display at Marshall Fields on State Street. 
 But the trains didn't arrive in the US for several years, and by then 
I was into scale railroading.  As an adult, now, I am pursuing my 
childhood dream and building a Provincial Railroad layout out of Lego. 
 I also collect the truly adorable Castle line.

Favorite Theme:  Castle (of course) and most of the Town stuff
Favorite Set: I guess if I just had to pick one it would be my
        King's Castle set I got a while back.  It was the 
        first one (I think) of the big gray castles, and it
        was also the last set I got (until recently)


I've been out of Lego for a while.  I've always wanted all
of those cool sets that have come out in the last five years
or so since I stopped getting Lego (especially the big
pirate ships).  But I never had the money to buy them, and
my parents wouldn't have gotten them any more since I was
"too old".  Recently, though, my summer job has given me a 
lot of time to snoop around the net and when I found RTL it
rekindled the Lego fire.  I'm just hoping I don't spend
too much of my summer earning on sets (I guess I'll just
have to go without books next year :)

While I'm at it, anyone out there know of a good way to win
my girlfriend over to the Lego side.  We had fun putting
together the Rocky River Retreat (title?) but she isn't
completely hooked yet :)

	Collecting since: 1977(?)
	Number of pieces: ~25000-30000
	Favorite themes: Castle, Town, Space, Aquazone
	Favorite sets: Fire stations, Starfleet Voyager
	Comments: 
	Well, I feel like an old timer to this except when I discovered
how long LEGO has been around.  Right now, I'm trying to build up my collection
into ludicrous levels (though compared to when LEGO brings their stuff, my
collection looks tiny indeed).  One 
	One of my goals is to have my room pervade LEGO.  Right now, I ran out
of space on the desks and cabinet.  Unfortunately though, I doubt my parents 
will have any desire to let me place my stuff around the house and I have no
basement.  Another goal is to re-create a place set similar to JJR Tolkien's
Gondalin (wasn't that the enormous city-fortress with a castle mounted on top
of a mountain?).  The other goal is to create a situation similar to Macross
except that none of the vehicles can transform into towering robots.  
	Because of my interests in RPGs (esp AD&D), I'm attempting to create
a Battlesystem setting using LEGO, minatures, and natural building blocks (no,
not those you disgusting pervert!).  However, since I lack many of the 
forestmen series, a natural outdoors setting will be difficult to create.
	Future ideas:
 	Castle: Hopefully, LEGO will produce a village setting with Inn, farms,
shops, etc.
	Town: An archology.
	Space: Anything but built with more stability as opposed to the Unitron
sets.
	Aquazone: No Abyss!!!!!!!

   I had some of my Legos mailed out to my new home and UPS delivered

Organization: America Online, Inc. (1-800-827-6364)

Name: Denny (Denise) Friis & Frank Zahrt III
Sex-yes we have it-sorry couldn't resist.Denny's female, Frankie's male
Age-Denny-almost 26; Frankie 26
Marital Status-we've been happy w/ each other for 7+ years -so why ruin a
good thing. Besides marriage certificates cost money that we can spend on
lego:). You have to have your priorities in order.
Children-no we aren't ready to share our lego, yet. I still have a hard
time convincing Frankie he has extra pieces to his trains that I REALLY
need for my castles.
Occupation-Denny rodeo clown for the tire mounting area of Sam's Club
(part of Wal-mart but I don't get a Wal-mart discount:( ). Frankie lead at
Circuit City roadshop (car stereo alarm installs). Basically we're
corporate slaves.
# of sets in lego collection-one large china cabinet full of castles
stuff, one dining room table of train stuff, miscellaneous models
scattered around the house, a couple or three rubbermaid containers full
of parts-how many is that? Did anyone count?
# of lego pieces-please refer to above answer
Favorite themes-Denny castle Frankie trains
Favorite sets-Black Monarch's Castle (recieved for 23rd B-day) this was my
1st lego set (for you Non-Castle Geek Number Crunchers NCGNC it's set
6085). I'm not sure Frankie has a favorite.
Current project-stealing Frankie's pieces :) 
Other interests-Frankie's a private pilot:) Denny's scared of small
planes:(. Computers,  Muscle cars, SCA - does anyone out there know of a
cheap hobby?
Pets-LOTS-rule one if it shows up feed it & name it-Currently feeding 8 or
so cats 8 kittens-anyone want one? 3 dogs, 2 puppies & a horse. (Did I
mention Frankie brings home strays?)
Other members of household-Donna (24) Denny's little sister. She thinks
we're kinda nuts & has little interest in legos except helping younger
brother to build his.
Cars-'66 GTO convertible, '66 Tempest hardtop, '67 Firebird convertible,
'63 Falcon Futura convertible, '63 Falcon hardtop, '68? Falcon
slightly(hehe) modified, '87 Ford F-150 pu, assorted lego cars.
Disclaimer-I have know idea what's running today-Frankie has been known to
swap perfectly good engines between cars because he was bored. He's not
happy unless he's taking something apart or putting it together. I guess
that's why he likes lego.
More info than anyone wanted or needed (sorry).

                                affordable housing for lesser nobles
Current project:              Making the Rotor Air Service WWW pages
                                (bios of characters, pictures of vehicles,
                                price scale for services offered, etc.)
Greatest claim to LEGO fame:  Co-creating the Rotor Air Service--the rowdiest
                                no-job-too-illegal Lego mercenary company
                                around

The RAS was created about six or seven years ago by myself and an uncle of
mine.  He started me on building helicopters for various unsavory Lego
characters, and from there it took on a life of its own.  The company has
existed in many different forms over the years, with only its setting 
(an undisclosed island in the Caribbean) and a few central characters 
remaining constant.  The members of the RAS range from a bo-wielding chief
tech/bartender ("Mr. Clean and his staff will be pleased to serve you.")
to a financial consultant who was kicked off of Wall Street for making 
investment choices that were a bit...too good.  All in all, the RAS has
been the single best interactive storytelling device I've ever encountered.

Which brings up a question:  Does anyone else use Lego people to role-play?
If so, how?  My uncle and I worked well together, as both of us controlled
characters on both sides of the conflicts that had a way of happening.  We
were both committed to realism, so logic usually prevailed over "I shot you
first" arguments.  Alas, he moved out a few years ago, so I've just been
maintaining the Service and having it ready to play with for when he visits.

For those of you interested in getting an idea of what a RAS member looks
like, here's the standard uniform:  white pants with black belt, pirate-theme
imperial torso with blue sleeves, black gloves, unique face, and head
covering of choice.  Of course, seeing as it IS a mercenary company,
deviations from standard uniform are more common than strict adherence to it.

Enough of my fantasy world.  This post is in response to the six hours of
smiling that stumbling upon this 'froup has caused.  Even though you're all
just selfishly pursuing your own love of a deceptively simple plastic toy,
thank you anyway.

Mark

PS- I had no idea a "Forest Wench" was so rare.  After hearing mention of her
in a few unrelated posts, I realized that I had purchased the Foresters'
River Crossing completely by accident a number of years ago.  I went into my
people box, and sure enough, there she was.  The upshot of all this is that
one, she and I have been reading posts together on rtl for the last two 
hours, and two, no, I will NOT trade her.  Play well.  :)

Children: should be heard and seen. No, I don't have any.
Occupation: Desktop Publishing Professional (whatever.)
# of sets in LEGO collection: ten or so
# of LEGO pieces: a thousand, I suppose, averaging 100 per set?
First LEGO set: a Universal Building Set. I had it up until a couple of
years ago when my heartless parents gave it to Goodwill.
Favorite theme(s): Castle and Pirates
Favorite set(s): That I have, Dark Dragon's Den. In the world, all of them.
Current project: Eating a chicken sandwich
Greatest claim to LEGO fame: I have an early Space guy (all white, red
hands, planet on chest) who enters all my other temporally displaced

marital status: Single
children: maybe never
occupation: recent college gradaute.  (i.e. unemployed)

# sets in LEGO collection: ~30-40
# pieces: rough estimate at ~2000 (?)
first set: The claw-backed space vehicle, piloted by a Red space
figure (this is 6822 in Europe)

favorite theme: Space!  ^_^
favorite set: The Galaxy Explorer and Galaxy Commander, neither of 
which I ever owned, so they became holy grails to me.  Space Supply
Station and Cosmic Fleet Voyager, of the sets I own.

current project: Cleaning up those long-unused things and making
repairs to broken pieces after a recent visit by young cousins.
("hurricane Corey and Theodore")  Making tearful decision about
whether to sell these beloved old bricks.

greatest claim to fame: Having the most "advanced" weapon craft
designs and best color-coordination in the lego wars of junior high
school, with hard points, reactive armor and ability to be quickly
modified into multiple configurations (depending on the mission) by
changing removable parts stored at the bases.  The rugged "Turtle"
series was our side's battle saint of the ground war, with the "Dragon
Turtle" the most feared ground vehicle around.  Air and Space duties
were handled by the armored all-purpose "Starlite" interceptor series
(my personal favorite ones ever..don't you wish you were smart enough
to take pictures of long lost designs?  ;_;).  

But we lost the war because there weren't enough "good" pieces left to
make decent secondary vehicles to support the prima donnas.  ^_^

other interests:  video games, drawing, reading, movies

# of sets in LEGO collection: I'd quess atleast 50
# of LEGO pieces: I've never counted. I have 2 very large rubbermate totes full.
First LEGO set: 1976 (the year, not the set) I got my first basic set for 
	  Christmas. It had clear roof pieces, swinging gates, and the
	  people had long, jointed arms. I combined my set with a friend's
	  set (and I had more lego than her) and then she moved away
	  and, eventually, gave the entire set away. I was crushed and
	  have been overcompensating for the trauma ever since I got 
	  my first job.
Favorite theme(s): Town and Castle
Favorite set(s): Anything with cool pieces to include on my houses. I just
	  purchased the mega castle on Friday and spent the weekend
	  putting it together. It's a great set. My husband (what a guy!)
	  bought a pink set (Paradiso?) just so I could have the spiral
	  staircase that I had been eyeballing.
Current project: Keeping my 3 year old out of the lego bins until she's
          old enough to appreciate them. Right now she leaves them on the
	  floor and doesn't know how to take care of them. We're working on
	  it. Also, she knows the legos are Mummy's toys. :-)
Greatest claim to LEGO fame: All the kids at my daughter's daycare want to come
	 over to our house and play with the legos.
Other (non- LEGO) interests: Playing with my daughter, quilting, hiking in the
	foothills, traveling, gambling (slots and roulett in Vegas), and 
	writing.

Still working out the details.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  I can't imagine anyone who has accumulated 
as much Lego as me in such a short period of time. ;)   And the scary

collections are as large as my Lego collection.  I like the Animaniacs,
the Simpsons, collecting Happy Meal toys, and eating out (though I'm 
learning how to cook right now).

with a satellite dish on the back. Also the Deep Freeze Defender was

slippery when wet street sign; a goddess statue in all white legos, a
crescent moon statue, also all white; a valentine with an arrow thru it (I
used a red 2x1 brick with a hole in the middle and a technic rod for the
arrow) for my husband; Big Bird -- a really great replica including the
pink eyelids which I had to buy a Paradisa set for.

# of LEGOfests Attended:  none

First LEGO Set:  not sure, but I know I have some really OLD sets,
 including some of the pre-minifig people with featureless faces,
 and 1 or 2 of the giant people with articulated arms. I also seem
 to have a lot of car grilles with headlights painted on.

Favorite Theme(s):  Space! Space!! SPACE!!!

Favorite Set(s):  the old Space sets...Galaxy Explorer and the
 Mobile Lab in particular.

Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  a toss-up between the Spyrius
 hoodlum guy who came with my Saucer Scout, and the HUGE wheels
 from my old Expert Builder Auto Chassis.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  don't know if I have one...but
 does anyone remember the following?
 *The LEGO Storage Bag - a big circular piece of denim with a 
  drawstring so it can be pulled up into a bag.
 *The very first version of the Space Command Center - it did NOT
  have a cratered baseplate, but a flat one with some pieces (curved
  and sloped) that you could make craters from.  I believe this was
  the version I had, but I have lost the instructions & box long
  ago.

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Games of all types, particularly board
 and RPGs (and even Magic), Science Fiction, space exploration,
 Doom, and that physics stuff that I try to do for a living.

Occupation:  Student, Part Time Librarian

On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since:  December, 1995

# of Sets in LEGO Collection: 32 full, 8 Mini-fig sets, 3 misc. (wheels, 
doors, etc.), and the mini-figs from the original Dragon Castle

# of LEGO Pieces: Used to be more than 3,000, but I gave about half 
(town, space, and basic) to my brother, when I decided to specialize in 
Castle stuff. I've added more since then, though, so maybe 2,000.

# of LEGOfests Attended: None.

First LEGO Set:  A small space vehicle, a sort of one-man launch, with a 
white space guy. I was three, so that's 1979, and it got mixed in with my 
cousin's and was never seen again.

Favorite Theme(s): Castle, definitely, but give me the new men, arms, and 
animals, and the old castles.
Favorite Set(s):  375/6075 Yellow Castle.
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): 2x2x3high buttress pieces (simplicity)
                                 hand axe and hammer
                                 Old-style knight's visors (T-slot)
                                 Uniformed Soldiers from Pirates
                                 Norse bearded guy from Sea Serpent
                                 The Wizard

Current LEGO Project:  None, really. I've got this impregnable castle and 
139 armed men of various kinds to defend it, but I haven't got the time 
to stage a battle. Maybe in the summer...
			
Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame: Lego battle in grade 7. My home-brew castle 
and siege equipment, against my teacher's boxed castles (original lion 
and eagle castles, and the tavern) and siege equipment. I cleaned up, 
because her knights couldn't climb my walls, just by standing on their 
horses' backs!

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Reading (SF/F, Hist, Shakespeare), computers 
(strangely enough, not a prerequisite to net-access, any more), starship 
design, the Holy Rutabaga, creating sleep deficit, and RPGs, occasionally.

On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since:  January 1996

# of Sets in LEGO Collection: I never really kept count, but I imagine
somewhere on the order of 50-70 (??).

# of LEGO Pieces: I have absolutely no idea, but they fill two drawers of
an old dresser in my room.... :-)

# of LEGOfests Attended: None.

First LEGO Set:  I have tattered instructions for a fire engine from the
days before posable mini-figs with faces (from 1978 or 79) but the first I
remember much is the 497 Galaxy Explorer.

Favorite Theme(s): Space and Castle.
Favorite Set(s):  Not sure, but quite possibly 6954 Blacktron Renegade.
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): Blacktron minifigs (the galactic bada**es...)
                                 the new Castle swords and halberds
                                 the new tools (from Launch Command, others)
                                 palm trees!

Current LEGO Project:  Nothing, really. I have only recently begun to ease
back out of my own mini-Dark Ages, and have mainly been picking up sets
with minifigs or bits that struck me as neat.
                        
Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame: There was the time I started to build a
starship interior with a floor composed of every 6x8 or larger base I
owned, but it's funny how an overturned table 3 days in can dampen one's
enthusiasm for such a project (especially in 2nd or 3rd grade).... :-\ 

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Reading (SF, Lovecraft, older Anne Rice, some
fantasy), Role-Playing Games, Warhammer 40K, Computers

On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since:            February 1996!!
# of Sets in LEGO Collection:      10 at home (Bloomington, Illinois)
                                   and ordering 3 more from Roy Gal
# of LEGO Pieces:                  don't know...
# of LEGOfests Attended:           None
First LEGO Set:                    a _BIG_ Universal set..the one with the
			           granny person and the teeny doors and the
				   big wheels and thick green plates... I
				   don't know where it is anymore...
Favorite Theme(s):		   Town, anything with pieces useful in
				   building houses, meaning 2-3 bedrooms,
				   baths with shower rooms, kitchens with 
				   islands, balconies and sunrooms, etc...
				   Hard to do with limited flat plates and
				   white 1x's...I use lots of door-sized
				   windows, etc... any other suggestions? I
				   also use things like flat 2x2's for the 
				   tiled bath/kitchen floors and outdoor
				   patio steps...
Favorite Set(s):                   I've combined the best pieces for house
				   building in a huge popcorn tin and a few
				   other containers, ie roof pieces in one,
				   flat pieces in one, people/small special
				   pieces in another, doors/windows/palmtree
				   and stacked bricks between flat pieces
				   (5 high of course for house-building) in
				   the popcorn tin...
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):   Hmm...outdoor lamps, clear pieces from my
				   old Universal set ofr glass block designs,
	|       		   flat tiles for kitchens, mailboxes for an
	|__     		   oven (wish there were a better piece for
	  |     		   that), a chair and a clear-blue plastic
	 _|     		   window piece to make bar stools as shown,
				   storage boxes that open (2x3x2) sideways
				   and the refridgerator (2x3x4, sometimes I
				   wish it were 2x3x5), slanted windows for
				   skylights, bumped out sunroom pieces (the
				   ones that curve and are 4x3x6)
Current LEGO Project:              Getting my mom to pack my Lego sets for
				   me and bringing them when they visit at
				   the end of March.  She may not do it...
				   but I'm also ordering from Roy Gal so I
				   will survive on those...
Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:       Oh, I just have fun building 3 bedroom,
				   2 bath homes with 2 stories, a balcony,
				   all the above I mentioned...better in
				   size than some homes in California, if
				   you think about the price!!! Goodness..
Best LEGO deal:                    Probably buying these older sets from
				   Roy Gal since I've been looking for a
				   number of sets and can't find any in TRU
				   here or at Target.  (Boohoo.)
Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:        I'm interested in floor plan designs and
				   in camping and keeping my relationship
				   with the one I love alive; hopefully it
				   will last for always...
Other:                             Oh, and I love food.  (not all...but..)
				   I love Thai food, hot curries plus...hey,
				   just see my homepages.  Thanks!

identical to #6666, #6524 (Blizzard Blazer), #6660 (Hook 'n' Haul Wrecker), a
small dumper and a firefighter's van.

Personal: I've been interested in Lego only since last May, when my son
received set #4153 for his birthday.  My creativity for designing constructions
is extremely limited, so I would very much wish to borrow, trade or otherwise
obtain copies of instructions for models I don't have (hint, hint).

Claim to Fame: Nothing I've got or have built is notable.  I have posted to the
FTP archive on earthsea.stanford.edu listings with piece by piece inventory
information for fifteen of my sets and reviews for eleven of these sets.  I am
compiling a list of Lego pieces by description and part number (where
available).  I wrote the Lego folks in Enfield and Billund, asking if there's
an official set of names and numbers for all the pieces; they replied that this
information is for use inside the company only and is not to be made available
to customers.  Anybody with more information is invited to contact me by email.

resist to the collision! That was phenomenal... But that was sure the

Mental Age/Status of Inner Child: I never know how to respond to this...  
Location:  Tuscola, IL  
E-mail Address: cfjbb@eiu.edu
LEGO/home page URL(s): don't have one  
Marital Status: married 
Children:  2, Frank, almost 20--never particulary into Lego, and Matthew, 
lmost 8--Lego is among his favorite toys
Occupation: college professor  
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since: I think I started reading r.t.l in January 1993  
Could that be right?.  Whenever it was, there were still a lot of "so this is 
rtl" type posts  

# of Sets in LEGO Collection: 112 
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: Just one (and that's only until Matt's 
birthday in two days
# of LEGO Pieces: 12,382 (more or less--that's the number I get from my data 
base)
# of LEGOfests Attended: none
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: none

First LEGO Set: I never had Lego as a child.  We had a basic set for Frank 
(this would have been around 81 or so--it had 3 "maxi-figures".  Matt's actual 
first Lego set was a B2 set called Grid Trekkor--which we acquired courtesy of 
his grandmother in December 92
FavoriteTheme(s):  I like Castle and Space.  Matthew likes Town, Wild West, 
Divers
Favorite Set(s): I like the set we have most recently built--whatever it may 
be.  I don't really have a permanent favorite.
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  I don't know if I have favorite pieces 
exactly, although slopes and reverse slopes are fun to build with.  Of the 
minifigs--gee, I really like the exploriens guys; I like Wolfpack, and oh, 
here's one: I think B2 guys are really cool.  I don't know about Matt's 
minifig preferences

Set/theme you would like to see:  For me, I'm just having fun seeing where 
they take the current themes.  Matthew would love to see Star Wars themes, and 
more specific military themes
Current LEGO Project:  I built a "flying saucer" and Matt and I are 
re-enacting scenes from the movie Independence Day.  

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  Well, I can't make any claims.  

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  I like reading about military history, and 
playing historically-oriented board wargames.  Matt has a lot of non-Lego 
interests; most of them are typical for an 8 year old.

# of Unopened Sets in Collection:  3
# of LEGO Pieces:  12000+ estimated
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: 0

First LEGO Set:  410 Payloader (in second grade, probabaly late 1977)
Favorite Theme(s):  Space
Favorite Set(s):  565 Moon Landing, 6984 Galactic Mediator, 
                  6929 Starfleet Voyager, 1789 Star Hawk II, 
                  497 Galaxy Explorer, and other space sets
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  The Blacktron II large white jetpack 
                                  (MMU) and a Blacktron minifig.
Set/theme you would like to see: 
Current LEGO Project:  Sorting loose pieces and finding room to display
   sets which are currently built.  Eventually I'm going to get around 
   to modifying a couple of my Launch Command sets to look like the 
   (now mothballed) Russian shuttles and shuttle carrier.  I'd also
   like to build an Eagle from Space 1999 to minifig scale.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  Large (I mean huge) spaceship which contained
   room for dozens of classic space minifigs.  This ship was heavily armed
   and had a drop ship underneath with working airlock.  Propulsion was
   provided by no less than 10 augmented large gray engines.  Drop tanks
   provided extra fuel necessary for long trips.  This ship was done in
   the same style as the 497 Galaxy Explorer only bigger.  Wish I'd
   gotten pictures of it before my parents made me take it apart (it
   was using so much of the family LEGO collection that my two younger
   brothers couldn't build much of anything).

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  None that I have time for, but I do like
   model building (plastic sci-fi, mostly), reading sci-fi, electronics,
   computers, bicycling, and others.

# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited:  none

First LEGO Set:  early 70's collection inherited from cousins

Favorite Theme(s):  Expert/Technic

Favorite Set(s):  8880 Super Car

Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  Technic worm gear.  It makes new
possibilities.

Set/theme you would like to see:  A return to sets with far fewer
specialized parts.  The 1776 Value Bucket is what I call a good start.

Current LEGO Project:  A scale model of the space shuttle, sized to
accomodate the legoland space figures, with lighted cargo bay, lighted
cabin, and motorized cargo bay doors.  All dimensions scaled from
drawings of the real thing.  Currently about 3.5' long, using Technic
pieces for interior structural elements, but all outside finishing
using non-Technic elements.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  As a youngster, found the 8860 Auto
Chassis (an $80 set, even back then) mispriced at K-Mart for $16.
Fortunately this was in the days before bar code scanners.  Oh yes, in

First LEGO Set: (72-85) Early BASIC set; (96-) 8230 Police Buggy
Favorite Theme(s): Technic
Favorite Set(s): 956 Auto Chassis 
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): Gear Reduction Unit; Flex System  
Set/theme you would like to see:

  Technic Subthemes.  In fact I'd love to get a whole technic
  Town, or even better, space theme going.  Unfortunately, this
  would probably be tough to market (and the sets would cost 
  a fortune.).  But, I'm imagining something like taking some
  existing LegoLand sets and enlarging them, and adding detail
  and, most importantly, more realism.  And the best part, we'd
  finally get some other types of techic figures.  And imagine
  A technic building with lights and working features, appliances
  or whatrever.  

  Dinosaurs.  Automated Walking and moving arms legs and tails. 
    Give us as many specialized pieces as you need to, just make
    them real.


Current LEGO Project: Just getting back into technic after ten
  years of absence from lego.   I've bought 15 technic sets over
  the past two months.  I'm building a 6 wheeled buggy using the
  large offroad technic tires.  It has 4 wheel steering and 
  suspension for each wheel.   

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  Well, none as far as this group.  But
  I have done some cool things back as a kid, like building a 4
  wheel drive, 4 wheel steering, fully indepently suspended vehicle
  back in 83 or so.   Lets see, what else.  A robot arm with rotating  
  wrist and elbow (rotating, not just bending).  A 6 foot freighter
  based on scaling up the lego 'fire fighter' boat.   

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests: Computers, software engineering, drawing
  biking, writing poetry.

# of LEGO Pieces: Wasn't this one of the tasks from Greek myth?
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0
  I have gone to a couple of the traveling shows in malls, museums, etc.
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: 0
First LEGO Set:  Mid 70s Basic set.

Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): The Technic differential.

Current LEGO Project:  Reading RTL; finding all my old sets and
  even the directions too sometimes!  :>
Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  Started on a kick-butt castle using
  my King's Castle, etc sets, which my sister and her friends 
  TORE DOWN (&^&%$^%!!!!) at a party....
  Also I've only ever broken about four or five pieces of Lego.
  One was a 4x8 plate and another was a Technic beam.
Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Computers, Electronic Kits/Projects,
  Air-cooled VWs.

Wow...Had seen this group in the list for a while but only recently
started reading it.  I hope the extra text here at the end of
the Roll Call is appropriate.

My early memories of Lego included their old black motor, the one
that was the black box with two "bricks" sticking out the ends,
and the separate wires and battery box (3 C, 4.5v).  The motor 
looked kind of like a Chevrolet logo from the side:   _-----_
                                                     I_     _I
                                                       -----
You get the idea, I hope.  I used to take the hubs from their older
wheels and bother my dad to bring home 1/4" (7mm) wide rubber bands
from the office so I could use them as belts.  I made a lot of windmills
by building towers atop the motor until I had streched out the "belt"
enough, then adding vanes to the axle at the top.  I also think the 
workings of the reversing switch inside the battery box got me 
interested in electronics and eventually computers, too.  :>

Later I remember one of the first "town" sets, before they really had
a "Legoland" with the big square grey base plates...probably in the
Big People era.  I seem to recall it was all blue and had a lot of
tires, it was a building and not a vehicle -- perhaps a service station?
Later was the fire station, then getting some of the early Technic sets.

My favorite Technic was their big model car, about a foot long.  I didn't
realize until later that it was basically a VW Beetle minus the body.
This was the car that had the grey "gas tank" up front, rack-and-pinion
steering, red seats on black pans, a 2-speed-plus-reverse gearbox
(the shift was in a blue housing between the seats), a 4-cyl horizontally
opposed engine with faucets for the spark plugs, hoses for the plug wires,
and strange yellow pylons down the lower edges which I now realize were
the VW heater boxes.  It also had two of those coil-over-strut shock
things on each rear wheel, the only big departure from VW design (real 
Bugs used torsion bars, kinda hard to model directly, but with an axle and
some rubber bands...hmm).  By the time I had that I had one of the early 
Technic motors, I think.  I despaired of having two so I could steer _AND_
propel the car!  :>

Then I got some of the first "castle" sets, Knight's Castle, King's Castle,
and a few others.  These were cool as you could swing the backs apart
and ring them all around together in a giant castle.  This later inspired
me to build a Really Big Castle [tm] but see the sad story above.

More recently I have gotten some of the Model Team sets, the semi cab,
and the flatbed semi w/helicopter.  Also, a few of the newer Castle sets,
with the green dragon.

I guess it's a common theme here, but I had noticed over the past few 
years that Lego sets were starting to have more 'special purpose' pieces
in them.  It started with the old Castle wall pieces, which were OK with
me, because you could still do different things with them.  But some of
the newer sets I see have pieces that I can only see fitting that set.
I get the impression this has been hashed over many times before, though.

Reading the ng inspired me to get out my old Legos and to also get a
1776 Blue Bucket O Lego at Wal-Mart.  :>  While there I also got a 
6581 Dig N' Dump, mostly because I remember the bulldozer scoop/truck 
bed end piece from waaay back.

I have just started to visit some of the WWW sites in the FAQ.  Perhaps
this has been asked before, but is there a listing anywhere of _all_
the known sets, with model numbers, names, piece counts, etc?  Or would
legal considerations prevent this if it didn't come from Interlego AG?
I realize there are catalogs, but I think it's a safe bet they don't
have the first couple of Lego sets I ever played with still in there.  :>

Well, that's my delurk!  Since spamming seems to have become a problem
since I last posted to USENET in volume, please make the obvious change
to my reply-to.  Thanks all!

show came 'round to Woodwards (a now defunct department store renowned for
its devotion to toys) and I went. It was NeatO.
 First LEGO Set: I actually don't remember not owning Lego. The first set

open lid. It came with a green, one-brick-tall base-plate that's about
10x20 in size.

(Diesal Daredevil). My ultimate Lego Dream is to build a fully-functional
Battle Mech.

rectified the situation by pulling apart another set (w/ his permission of
course) and using the parts.

directions for this thing.  First "real" set was 402, a big

figure out pairs of sets to ring up  together.  I'm sure I'm famous to

On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since: January 1997!!  
# of Sets in LEGO Collection: New sets- 15 since October
				Old sets.....you know the routine
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: NONE!!!!  Why buy them if you can't play
with them!  My opinion will probably change soon though....
# of LEGO Pieces: 9,873 and 1 / 2 (I've got a broken piece
:(..............)
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: 0
First LEGO Set: I don't know which one came first.  I got a police set in
the late 70's, maybe  77.  It had mini-figures...but they didn't have any
facial features, or arms...plus their legs were all one piece!  I've still
got at least on of those!  I also had a Spirit of St. Louis, and a Red
Helicopter really early on...So I'm not sure which one came first.  My
first set with Mini-figures was a coast guard base....that must have been 
78 or  79.  I also had two of the  79 series space sets.  I'd really like
to find the instructions for those!!
Favorite Theme(s): Space/Town/Train!!!!!!!!!!
Favorite Set(s): Probably my first Space set...I don't know the
number...but it has a Ship "ID" number piece that says LL924.  This is how
I always referred to it!  My two other favorite sets was the original
Kings Castle...Man I still have hundreds of yellow pieces!  And a
non-motorized European Train set that I got in 1983!  
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): My favorite Minifigure is the one that
came with my space set.  I've used the same head but changed the body as
"his" "rank" "increased" (Really as new colors of space figures came out. 

Set/theme you would like to see: Lego Air force.  OR A classics reissued
set...with some of the old sets reissued!  They do it for Star Wars and
other toys why not Lego.  (I can hear the collectors screaming
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Current LEGO Project: I'm working up to Modeling a Lego train set....But
I've got to save the $$$$$ first!!!!

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame: In 1980 at the height of Battle Star
Galactica I built a Lego "viper" to go with the toy viper I bought.  Well
it's now 1997 and I still have the same set now!  It is built around the
pieces from the original Space set and modeled in red.  It's gone through
numerous modifications but the base structure, cockpit,  and wing assembly
are still the same!  So it's a 17 year old Lego creation!!!  My other
claim to fame is a three story Lego house modeled in yellow....Can we say
Kings Castle from 1984?????????

Occupation: student (CS major), part time crap jobs to pay to BE a student
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since: well..I've been on 3 other toy NGs for over a year,
  but have only been lurking here for a few months, mainly 'cause (for some 
  reason I forgot) I dragged out all my old sets, bought some '97 sets, and
  now have LEGO on the brain

# of Sets in LEGO Collection: Umm...I have no idea really, >50 but <100
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: nada..I can barely afford to buy 'em at all,
                                  damned if I'm not building 'em :P
# of LEGO Pieces: shoot, your guess is as good as mine 
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: 0

*but there's some 'thing' that used to come to the mall every now and then,
 that had HUGE LEGO monuments (Statue of Lib., White House, Lib. Bell, Lincoln
 Memorial, etc, etc.)...really impressive stuff..or so it seemed at age 7.

First LEGO Set: <think, think> I _think_ it was the 3-pack that included
  the 6824 Space Dart-I and two other smaller space sets..I've long since 
  lost the instr. for all 3, but all the pieces are still around

Favorite Theme(s): Space, space, and space :P (I have quite a few sets from
                   the other themes, but a severe chunk of 'em are Space)  

Favorite Set(s): 6980 Galaxy Commander, 6990 Futuron Monorail, 6274 Caribbean
                 Clipper (the 6285 BSB would be in this list too..if I um,
                 had one)

Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): Blacktron figs and the revamped '88 Space 
  suit guys (Futuron and such)..especially the elusive black suit guy. Also, 
  the original Forestmen.                                  

Set/theme you would like to see: some sort of Military theme...Air Force type
  jets, Aircraft carrier, battleships, tanks, jeeps, etc. (and I don't wanna 
  hear about "guns and such are bad"..lookit all the guns in the Pirates and 
  WW themes..not to mention _dynamite_ for Pete's sake.

Current LEGO Project: Putting all the old stuff back together is enough for
  now..but I do have two semi-original creations that are still intact...one 
  is a variation on the middle pod of the 6894 Blacktron Invader..sorta like 
  a Dignitary shuttle that stands alone, as well as combines with the Invader
  (and the Blacktron leader for me, was the only original black suit space guy
   I had...see, he was a traitor, split off and formed BT :P)

   I also built something that looks suspiciously like the Alien Moon Stalker
   (since I never had one, but wanted one) crossed with a SW AT-AT...main 
   difference is it uses 8 corner castle pieces for the sides, as opposed to 
   those funky 2-way sloped windows. I built a Blacktron clone of it, but
   it was 'defeated' shall we say..it'd be easy to rebuild, as I still have
   the 'original'.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame: As for totally original creations...I built
  a fairly large Enterprise..two different times, when I was young. The 
  second was a heck of a lot more sturdy and just better looking than the
  first. Unfortunately...to build it, I had to snag pieces from just about
  EVERY Space set I owned, so when I wanted to build the original sets back,
  well, I watched Star Trek III and re-enacted the end :P I made some
  instructions...but I was only maybe 10-11, and while they seemed to make
  perfect sense at the time...they're pretty unintelligble now (although,
  I can make out the basic design..plus I've gotten lotsa sets/pieces since, 
  so I could probably improve on it). 
  I also built a Millenium Falcon at some point, using 2 sets of grey
  airplane wings for the front part...the best thing was, it used mostly
  castle pieces (grey, ya know) so it lasted longer than the Enterprise,
  and actually was 'part' of my Space setup for a while. Alas...I never
  made instructions, but IIRC it was really nice.

  Oh..these were both at minifig scale..well, not SCALE scale (as the 
  Enterprise woulda been huge), but you get my drift)

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests: Well, I'm a toy junkie...I got back into all
  sorts of other things about 2 years ago...old Star Wars toys, old
  Transformers (as well as the new SW and TF lines..how else do you think
  I wandered into the LEGO aisle, and bought all the Robo-Force sets?),
  and misc. assorted action figures, those 1:18 die cast cars (since I'll
  never get a 1:1 '63 Cobra). Also, CDs, concerts, movies, and computers 
  to touch on other stuff that's 'interesting' to me (notice, Univ. of TX
  ain't in there).

*Just to add another factoid not on the survey...most recent purchase..

I always wanted a Space Shuttle..not some crazy freaky Space vehicle..I
mean, NASA shuttle. Unfortunately, I reached that "Hey man, I'm too old for 
toys" stage circa 1989-90 (my last set as a 'kid' was the Caribbean Clipper)
and exited stage left before the 1682 Town Space Shuttle came out. I vaguely
remember seeing it back then..but never got it. Now I trot back into the
scene and find that I've apparently missed the bigger-better-badder 6339
Launch Command Shuttle Launch Site set. Well..I didn't find that, but I found
a dusty ol' 6544 Shuttle Transcon 2 the other day..near as I can tell, the
shuttle from this set is 99% identical to the one in 6339, so I'm kinda
happy..I have a bona-fide Space Shuttle (to encounter the UFO aliens come 
July)...albeit..about 10 years later than I would've liked.

Year of Birth: 1961
Mental Age/Status of Inner Child: 9 (But I've got credit cards!)

E-mail Address: teeml on AOL, legoteem on Hotmail
LEGO/home page URL(s):
http://www.geocities.com/EnchantedForest/Glade/2480/index.html
Marital Status: Still taken by my ever-tolerant nikin, the SO.
Children: None that I'm aware of, but I'm a deep sleeper. I'm sure my
sweetie would have told me...
Occupation: Rumor has it that I'm still paid to be a Principal Software
Engineer. You could fool me, though. I'm an occasional webmaster,
editor, project leader, slayer-of-trees, mailroom sorter, meeting
facilitator, Speaker-to-Microsoft, librarian, lab czar, system manager,
tilter-at-the-spam-windmill and release engineer. Writing software--who
does that anymore? You hire college kids to do that and give them either
Gatorade and 40-30-30 bars or Jolt and smack (depending on which
sub-culture you get) and they bang out an MFC-based POS that looks like
every other Microsoft POS in the last three days of your four-week
project after wasting most of their time surfing on the company T1 line
and the rest of it pressing buttons on their Tamogotchis. But do I sound
bitter? No! I'm not bitter. I remember coding a BASIC interpreter in 4
kilobytes on an 8088! I remember hand patching the paper tape for an IBM
360 magnetic tape driver! Do any of these kids remember 8" floppy disks?
Back when they WERE floppy?! Do any of them know how to read Hollerith
code? Sigh. Kids these days. No respect for the old days. What was I
talking about, anyway? Oh, yeah, LEGO! Sorry, ignore all that. Even the
parts that are true. Does anyone read these things anyway?
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since: 1994, but I've been lurking for a few years.

# of Sets in LEGO Collection: GAH! I lost track three years ago. I said
600 then. I've got about 60 sitting on the living room floor right now
being demolished and sorted into the existing collection.
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: Well, in addition to the thirty or so
I'm demolishing and sorting this week, I've got about eighty or so boxes
hiding in the basement, twenty of which are more-or-less investment
quality, and about forty or fifty unopened theme bags. That's probably
an underestimate. My ever-tolerant nikin, the SO, suggests unkindly at
times that I could open up my own toy store.
# of LEGO Pieces: Oh, please.
# of LEGOfests Attended: none
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: sigh, none

First LEGO Set: Basic Set 105...I still have the box and probably all of
the pieces, although last year I found out my kid sister was holding out
on me! Many years ago when my brother and I vacated the house to go to
college, she crawled through the basement and collected every stray
piece of LEGO she could find. (She was eleven then.) I got to see the
good-sized box she has been hoarding all these years. Lots of classic
70's pieces. Grrrr....
Favorite Theme(s): Town Town Town Town Town (castle) Town (wild west)
Town
Favorite Set(s): Basic set 730; the classic "trees and flowers"
accessory set; Basic Set 725 (I still have about six unopened right
now); oh, and Pizza to Go (forgot the number), a very fun set with those
shallow corner pieces. My favorite sets are those that generate good
parts. For instance, the current Metro PD Station has those GORGEOUS
black windows that I want to incorporate into my own designs.
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): my two orange bricks (c. 1970); the
minifig of the ever-tolerant nikin based on the "Joe Cool" head w/blue
sunglasses, black body, brown "woman" hair, and the black, um, vine; any
bevelled brick is great and I especially like black and blue ones; the
big grey castle arches; I've become especially fond of thin wall pieces
and the extreme slope 6x8x1 roof bricks. I'll be putting some of my own
creatiosn on my WWW page using these elements.
Set/theme you would like to see: More complex town sets using nice
architectural elements. I'd like to see a "Classical/Ancients" theme,
even though it would never be done--just not enough kid interest. 

Current LEGO Project:  

Sorting. Cleaning out the basement so I can get back to building. I've
been on a buying spree lately thanks to some found money and an idle
time in my travels.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame: Nothing worth mentioning in a while.

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  

As before, that's still an open question. My main interest is the
ever-tolerant nikin, the SO, my love, my life, my joy, my muse, my
passion, my heart, and for whom I hope to give back large chunks of the
basement that I've taken over with the LEGO projects by her birthday
this year. (There, I've gone and posted it publicly. I'm committed now.
And not much time left, either. I've got a LOT of LEGO and other stuff
to move out.) My sweetie still has the power of finding, which helped me
in several clearance sales this year and even helped me spot a few old
Blacktron sets at Zellers during our last Canada trip that I picked up
on reflex. Her count is now up to ten states, two provinces, and two
other countries. I love her tremendously. Even more than my LEGO,
although she may not think so.

Other than LEGO and my sweetie, our interests include live-action
role-playing and costumery (No, we do NOT dress up as minifigs; she
wouldn't for one and she'd kill me if I did!). We play train games,
build Wattersonian snowmen, enjoy lapidary, science fiction, and good
food. We also travel, shock the locals, and enjoy the childhoods that we
missed out on for one reason or another. I enjoy a few other things that
my sweetie does not, and vice versa. This is goodness. There are other
things as well but I will not share them here. Do not let one interest
consume you.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  inventing the Ice planet color scheme on a
                              spaceship two years before the Lego group
                              came out with the Ice planet theme, and
                              haveing this same set in more or less the
                              same configuration (with a few
                              modifications) since 1989 (this, three
                              pirates, a firing cannon, and an Islander
                              set were the only things to survive my
                              second dark ages), and inventing a flyer for
                              the Royal Knights (It's sorta based on the
                              Gnomish flying machine used in Warcraft 2).

E-mail Address: kramer@bignet.net
LEGO/home page URL(s):  Ugh!  I don't have a home page yet! How
mortifying!
Marital Status:  Married 3 yrs
Children:  0
Occupation:  Software Development Manager
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since:  August, 1997 (very new here)

# of Sets in LEGO Collection:  Approx 50 for keeping, another dozen or so
for trade
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: Currently about ten, but I don't know
how many will
	make it to Monday.
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: 0

First LEGO Set:  I was too young to remember.  I inherited some pieces
>from  my older sisters
around 1972 or so.  I still have some of these.  They're so old the bricks
still have "Patent Pending" (or its abbreviation) stamped on them.  But I
don't know what set they're from.

Favorite Theme(s):  Town, Castle, Space

Favorite Set(s):  Probably my old Galaxy Explorer (sigh). I miss her.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  I once owned what I would call the "Grand
Slam" of LEGO:  Four of the classic sets, from each genre of the time (late
70s):  Galaxy Explorer from space, Main Street from Town, the original
yellow Castle, and the first expert series Auto Chasis.  Sadly, none of
them survived my Dark Ages.  I have a few of the pieces, and the tattered
instructions of the castle, but nothing else...

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Tennis, Magic the Gathering

In the past 6 weeks since coming out of my dark ages (maybe I'll have to go
back and pinpoint the date, so I can celebrate it as an anniversary), I've
tried to rebuild my old lego collection by going to my nephews house (who
inherited my LEGO) and getting some of the pieces that remained of my
collection, and going on a shopping binge to find recently-discontinued
sets locally.  The 50 or so sets I now have I have accumulated in the past
six weeks, at an almost exhaustive pace (both for me and my budget).  But
it's been a great time!

has a good chance of winning a ribbon! :-)

First LEGO Set: A big flat box with styrofoam dividers (childhood

Paradisa Sand Dollar Cafe is almost cooler. They used pieces in ways I'd
never seen before.

They get together and conjure police boats and lock Timmys up in caves.
It's a party.

Current LEGO Project:  Purchasing more shelves so the Coastal Patrol
police boat isn't next to the Islanders anymore. It looks ridiculous.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  The fact that I'm probably going to end up
paying an hour's wages for one lousy 'DkGray Belville Cat' in Auczilla,
just because I didn't buy the damn set that has it at MacFrugal's when I
had the chance.

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Words, sentences, paragraphs, chapters,

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:     Probably winning the 3b set in 1973,
        but perhaps being the most recognised technical builder in my
        neighbourhood from 11 to 18, primarily for designing "supersteering",
        a system which seriously improved the 954 Go Kart's rack and pinion
        steering system's turning circle.  There were several 954's around, and
        we had regular meets to race our models against the clock through a
        tight course made of scattered bricks and other lego debris.  Sigh.
        That was fun, when I had time to do those things...
Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:           Terry Pratchett's Discworld, computers,
        my family, the Australian Outback, 4WDing, pool, chocolate, friends,
        soccer, puzzles, paradoxes and connundrums, flirting, mechanics,
        photography, volleyball, scrabble, chess, Trash & Rock'n'Roll music

themselves very well to technic in the classroom. 
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since: December

# of Sets in LEGO Collection:  Who knows, I always open them and throw
out the boxes.	The technic gets sorted, the rest goes in a big tub. 
Anyway, a lot.

# of LEGO Pieces: thousands 
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: 0

First LEGO Set:  Some basic building set in the early 60s.  It's
unfortunately long gone.  I seem to remember it having a battery-operated
light, so you could make a house and light it up, but I might be thinking
of something else. 
Favorite Theme(s): technic 
Favorite Set(s): rebel wrecker, technic motorcycle with chain drive. 
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  technic differential
Set/theme you would like to see: MORE AND MORE AND MORE COMPLEX TECHNIC SETS!
Current LEGO Project: my $79.95 space shuttle that I've been working on for
about a month.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  none, except among ninth-graders unlucky
enough to be in somebody else's class.	They think all we do is play with
lego!  We do, however, do a lot of REAL work too.

Marital Status: only in 'my' kingdom
Children: only one adopded heiress to the throne of 'my' kingdom
Occupation: I _am_ a student, _survive_ with money from teaching but
 whenever I can help it, doing nice things with friends _occupies_ my time
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since: today

# of Sets in LEGO Collection: They are all childhood treasures, some
 bought, some received as presents from my parents, mostly mixed together
 now, never counted.
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: None. I'd only leave a newly bought,
 ment-as-a-present LEGO-box closed.
# of LEGO Pieces: Not as many as I'd like to have!
# of LEGOfests Attended: -
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: I didn't know there were any apart from
 DK-Billund, where I always failed to go on my visits to Denmark. So far.

First LEGO Set: As far as I remember, it was a white house with a blue
 roof and a garage, but it might also have been a red windmill with a blue
 roof on the mill-tower and a white one on the little house beside it.
Favorite Theme(s): I play LD&D, that means that with alternating masters
 from among the group, we play Dungeons And Dragons in a pre-built
 LEGO-setting. I wonder if anyone else does.
Favorite Set(s): Despite the fact that these are not that useful for our
 role-playing, this question has to be answered with some nostalgia: The
 older they are, the more I love them!
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): Here again, I like the standard pieces,
 maybe the two-rows-of-four is my very favourite.
Set/theme you would like to see: Always searching for nice
 birthday-presents for friends, I'd like to see some small everyday-life
 sets, like, for example the pizza-car that we gave to someone who sells
 pizzas to finance his studies.
Current LEGO Project: Well, it's my turn to be role-master in LD&D again,
 we'll play on Feb. 23rd and I haven't started planning yet. But I'll have
 to come up with quite some self-invented stuff, or my friends will be
 pretty dissapointed.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame: I invented the changing of the role-master,
 therby keeping the whole thing alive (otherwise it'd probably have happened
 only once) and bringing my own LEGO pieces in.

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests: Plenty. Apart from enjoying almost anything I
 can do with some friends, I like cycling in the summer and playing computer
 or watching TV, especially StarTrek, X-Files and movies on TV/Video.

the late seventies/early eighties)

Town; Town, Jr. (in that order)
Favorite Set(s):  too many to list

Right now they are divided between three locations:  my dormroom, my room
back home, and my office at my dad's lawfirm.  I have plans for a large
city layout with a movie studio at one end of town.  Inside the studio will
be several sound stages where I will have my space, pirate, castle,
adventurers, etc. set up like different movies being filmed.  I'm currently
working on businesses and houses/apartments for my town.  Had a lego
building party in my dormroom last Friday and several friends helped build
a pizzeria, a junk yard/Exxon station, and several row houses.

# of LEGO Pieces:  This I do not know. For those who demand an answer: 
many. 
# of LEGOfests Attended:  0
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited:  0

First LEGO Set: I don’t remember, my grandfather sent a few from Germany 
around 1974. I was heavily into Webble Wobbles at the time you must 
understand. 
Favorite Theme(s):  Aqua, Space. 
Favorite Set(s):  Black Knight. Bring back beaked helms and removable 
breast plates you cads!
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  Black 2x2 inverse convex sloped brick. 
Black Knight. 
Set/theme you would like to see: An ancient Egypt theme. An ancient Rome 
theme. Orcs. WWII armor including articulated tracks. A pirate ghost ship 
with a mermaid/siren figure. What I really want is a quasi Biblical 
Armageddon theme complete Jehovah, Lucifer, Jesus, and the Four Horsemen. 
I’d also want a minifigure set of guest stars including Gautama Buddha, 
Brahma, Allah, and everyone’s favorite intergalactic villain Xenu. Then I 
could finally put my town minifigures to use as peons running around in 
the carnage. A philosophers theme would be great too. Sartre could have 
his little Lego beret and coffee cup, Voltaire would have a contemptuous 
sneer,  and of course Democritus would be included because he turned the 
universe into Legos.   
Current LEGO Projects:  Legos are sidelined until I finish up a handful 
of other projects.    
Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  When I was twelve, my friend and I were 
acting like typical bored gremlins during summer break when I came up 
with a brilliant idea. I tied the end of a spool of thread around an 
astronaut minifigure’s head and dubbed him Adventure Bob. Then my friend 
grabbed his parent's video and I slushed Bob down the toilet while 
narrating the brave voyage. After slushing the toilet 10 odd times, Bob 
decided he wanted to come up so I began rolling up the thread but then 
disaster struck. Bob was stuck in the pipes. I pulled too hard and the 
string broke sealing Bob’s fate in the watery grave. Mortified, we 
gathered the neighborhood kids together to watch the video and then held 
a funeral. Bob’s body was lost so we put the roll of thread in a box that 
acted as a coffin and sent it down the drainage gutter to it’s final 
resting place. In our hearts we like to believe that Bob was soon after 
freed from the pipes by a big wad of toilet paper and was sent out into 
the bay where he was rescued by a Coast Guard cutter. 
Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Far too many to list. Painting, sculpture, 
philosophy, theology, history, plotting world domination, beach volley 
ball, drinking orange juice with ice cubes, gothic tales (not her flighty 
sister the gothic novel), new wave science fiction, mind control 
techniques, all things sardonically sinister and elegantly macabre, and 
explaining why the Monroe Doctrine should have been extended to the 
eastern hemisphere.

around in a daze. Models bigger than me! Too bad I lost the big brochure
with pictures of all the models. Sigh.

Occupation:  Grad student (hopefully I'll be mathematician some day... :)
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since:  September 1996

Well, in response to the below question, I sort of have 2 collections--one of 
them resides with me here in NY and has been acquired since last June, when my 
wife gave me a Freight 'n Crane Railway for a wedding gift.  The other part 
lives with my brother Steve in Minneapolis along with the rest of our 
childhood Lego.  Perhaps I should try to convince his wife that my Lego is 
taking up too much space in their house...

But for my current collection:
# of Sets in LEGO Collection: 25 or so 
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: None (can't afford to keep them around--too 
	much good stuff out there to play with now!)
# of LEGO Pieces:  6000+
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: 0
First LEGO Set:  Hmmmm...I think it was a little late 70's set--a 
	bulldozer/tractor with red wheels that had tracks that fit over them.
Favourite Theme(s):  Train
Favourite Set(s):  4565 Freight 'n Crane Railway, 2150 Retrostation, Volcano 
	Island (it's got great parts--we have four of 'em!)
Favourite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  Hmmm...
Set/theme you would like to see:  Classic passenger train

Current LEGO Project:  Convincing myself to put the Lego away so I can do work 
when the semester starts soon...(but we've recently built a cool house, a big 
tunnel for the train, and a minifig clothing store--the last one was a 
blast--my wife agreed to let me leave the hands in the torsos as long as I 
didn't put heads with the hats and wigs on display :).

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  Well, I probably don't have one (except perhaps 
finding a Guarded Inn for $15 in near-mint condition a few months ago).

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  Math and science, church/campus fellowship, 
basketball and other sports, music, our cat

Personal note: I have been on this newsgroup since 1997. My main interest was
everything that has to do with trains. I collect train sets, i have all 9v
sets and some 12v sets. To get some extra money to buy the (expensive) train
sets i sell some lego now and than, mainly train sets like the Metroliner.
Due to the company policy of my Employer, KPMG, i am not allowed to have my
own homepage and e-mail account, so sometimes i use the Dejanews facilities.
If anyone has a question about trains or is looking for hard to find 12v
train sets, let me know.

Regards, Johan

First LEGO Set:  Roughly, Space Dart-1 #6824 (one of the oldest I remember
but I have a bunch of old town sets and the King's Castle as well )

Favorite Theme(s):  BLACKTRON 2  !!!!!!!!  (Sweeeeet as they come. Other
faves are Spyrius, Ice Planet, M-Tron, and Space Police II) Castle, Pirates,

ton of warheads. Space Police 2 and Blacktron 2 mini-figs are great

like the ones from Futuron through Exploriens (M-Tron, Space Police 1 + 2,

Exploriens / M-Tron WARS!

Occupation: Full time student, soon to be rocket scientist (no kidding!)
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since: late 1997

# of Sets in LEGO Collection: I don't even know.  Big ($20+), maybe twenty
	or so.  Little sets and just parts, I couldn't say.
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: Zilch.  Lego sets are to be opened and

# of LEGO Pieces: 10,000?
# of LEGOfests Attended: 0

First LEGO Set: A story here:  When I was 4 or 5, our house burned.  All
	my baby toys melted into colorful blobs.  That night we stayed
	at a motel, and Dad bought my and my little sister a box of
	Duplo blocks.  I sort of remember it was a carton with a spout
	on the side (like instant potatoes).  Anyone know the set number?
Favorite Theme(s): I love Space the best, and I don't think it's
	deteriorated at all.  The Warp Wing Fighter and the Insectoid
	cricket rover are great sets.  I'm also partial to Pirates,
	and given my projected life's work I'm going to have to collect
	all these new launch command sets even if they are a little
	corny.
Favorite Set(s): Tossup.  I love my Black Seas Barracuda, and I have
	the real-looking Town space shuttle (1682), but I also covet
	my sister's M-Tron rover and airport.
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): I would have to say the Classic Space
	3-way thruster piece.  Not too useful, but awfully cool-lookin'.
Set/theme you would like to see: I'd like to see a "classic" line where
	selected sets are reissued.  Like the ones I missed...
Current LEGO Project: I see a MindStorms in my future, but such plans
	are on hold pending graduation and a steady paycheck.

First LEGO Set:  (In current era) 6894 Blacktron I (Intended as gift to my

Favorite Theme(s):  Space and Castle
Favorite Set(s):  6894, 6886
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  Blacktron I minifig, easily.
Set/theme you would like to see: Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5

mast, stern- and forecastle, crew of 49 armed with castle/pirate theme
weapons shields and helmets, 34 prisoners below deck(including 6 Mega Blok
Vikings), with motorized propellors. Thinking of extending it out to over
four feet with 4 large masts. Then, to build a dock. :)

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  A toy chest from hell for my neices and
nephew. Filling a Rubbermaid chest up to the top with various lego sets(over
100 so far, mostly small). Still filling it. :) The kids complain about not
being able to find a part when it's in a small box in front of them. This
chest could take them months to sort out. It took this for my sister to
finally appreciate my warpped sense of humor.

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  None come to mind. :)

I had on at www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Hills/8841 I think it was,
about a danish DiscJockey who died from AIDS in 1990, but GeoCities
erased the html file and only the MP3 sample file was present last I
looked... I have enver wanted to have a Lego page before but I think I
may be getting to the point where I want one. But I want to get a
digital camera first... hehe.
So it is still none at the moment, rather than joining the "under
construction" crowd I wait until I get one with plenty of space
available and I have it all finished and only need updating....

Occupation:  Technical Consultant (self-employed)
On R.T.L (A.T.L) Since:  Nov 1998

# of Sets in LEGO Collection:  about 100
# of Unopened Sets in Collection: 1 (a Technic Giant Model set bought
on sale)
# of LEGO Pieces:  about 53,000
# of LEGOfests Attended: none
# of LEGO Theme Parks Visited: none

First LEGO Set: tiny set bought from Sears Roebuck & Co in mid 60's
LEGO Dark Age: from about age 14 to Nov 1998.
First LEGO set after the Dark Age:  Mindstorms
Favorite Theme(s):  Outback, Diver, and Res-Q for the quality of their
vehicles.  Ninja and Bat Lord for the romance, and also the horses and
dragons.  Playing with Technic is like rebuilding bicycles (an
ex-hobby of mine) but with no grease under your fingernails.  :)
Favorite Set(s):  I have 4 Flying Ninja Fortresses, that one gave me a
thrill every time I opened one and started taking out the pieces.  I
have 3 Mindstorms and 3 Giant Model sets, those two have so many neat
mechanical parts in them not to mention three robot brains.
Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s):  universal joint, rack and pinion
steering parts, dragons, orange dragon wings, flames, low slope roof
bricks in non-red colors, women with cleavages, men who don't look
like they are on meth - I particularly like the Spaceport rocket
scientist (I like all the geeky ones but him best) and the amiable one
with the scruffy red beard and mustache who shows up in some other
sets.
Set/theme you would like to see: less action toys (CyberSlam and
Throw-Up-Bots <error intentional>), less toys for 4-year-olds in sets
marked 7-12, something other than race cars in Technic.  Actually, if
you look over the years the themes/sets have just been retreads of one
another.  I could live with that if the trend towards simplification
was reversed.  Vehicles with working doors and hinged roofs are neat.
More availability of new colors of bricks (tan and brown, for
instance). My only wish for something completely new is for some
scenery components, like mountain building blocks.  Right now building
a mountain-side from BUMPs means bidding for parts stripped from other
sets and they are very expensive in quantities useful for real
landscaping.  I expect the Train enthusiasts would like that, too.
Imagine Duplo or Primo sized bricks in gray, tan and brown with the
ability to attach normal Lego to the surface, all for a reasonable
price of course.  Failing that, gray and green in reasonable
quantities for a reasonable price, ie by the hundreds rather than 62
at a time.
Current LEGO Project:  Slink's Plastic Universe, see website.  It's
the illustrated history of an entire planet, which I fear won't fit in
my house but I'm going to try my best.  The robotic project is on the
back-burner and it will stay that way until I get this out of my
system, or at least until I get all my ordered supplies in-house and
am unable to build anything more for lack of room.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame:  Either fastest growth of set collection
or happiest male minifig population, depending upon whom you ask.

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests:  computers for work, computers for play,
eating, sleeping, rolling in the hay, admiring the sunset, drinking
good California red wine or good single highland malt whiskey,
listening to music, taking long hot baths, contemplating the universe
(not all of these can be combined but many can)

First LEGO Set: I don't remmember, I was 1! And it wasn't those big
block either.

LEGO Dark Age: started aroung 14 until may 1998

First LEGO set after the Dark Age: Got the 5561 for xmas 1997, but the
first one that   really got me out was the 8459 and 5571

Favorite Theme(s): Technic and Team

Favorite Set(s): in order; 5571, 8840, 8459, 5542 (long storie), 8880
(the alternate model)

Favorite Piece(s)/Minifigure(s): The green brick seperator!

Set/theme you would like to see: A 3-4 feet, 12 wheels, low-rider w/
pneumatic itch trailler for my 5571, a kenworth T-2000 w/ a realistic
Catepillar C-12 inline 6 engine and maybe a 6 speeds transmission, a
snow plow / sand distributor truck. They should all be at the same scale
as the 5571, ie same tire. I would also LOVE to build a 15mx15m replica
of middle heart based on Tolkien's works. Imagine: first 3 year, you buy
the land, afterward it gets populated by treebeard, tom bombadil,
Sauron, the Elfs king and subject, etc. Then some building like Elrond's
castel. Don't forget the boat and the Eldar. After 10 year and a lot of
$$ latter, you pretty much have middle heart. Then it's time to follow
Bilbo and Frodo in there adventure and build bag end, the Prancing Pony.
One set per chapter from "The Hobbit" and "Lord Of The Ring" trilogy. I
would be more than happy to put 150k over a 30 year period :-)

Current LEGO Project: Trying to build a 1m low-rider trailer w/
pneumatic to transport my 8459.

Greatest Claim to LEGO Fame: I got enough wheels to build a 10 wheels
5571 and a 8 wheels trailer to go with it.

Other (Non-LEGO) Interests: Photography, cycling.
